Here is what I'm pretty sure is the problem. You need to be in object navigation.  I've long maintained that object navigation should be automaticaly moved to when you switch from the program you were using screen review in.  Not being in object navigation but rather in screen review causes these commands not to work as described because they don't necessarily move properly as you move the cursor.  Issue the command numpad insert numpad 1 until you hear object navigation.  You can't accidentally go too far because if you issue it again, you will hear something like no more modes.  If I'm right about what's causing the problem, maybe the designers should take what I've said in the past more seriously.
and after you use screen navigation and are finished using it, always go back to object navigation.

When I hit numpad 8 to read current line, it reads a completely
different line.  Same with previous line, word or character ETC. The
tutorial was called getting started with NVDA.
